Jenelle was born in California to a military family. When she was young, they moved to Alabama, where she grew up in southern roots. In the summer of 2021, she moved to O’ahu after her husband received his first duty station at Schofield Barracks.
Before moving to Hawaii, Jenelle worked as an Emergency Medical Dispatcher for an ambulance and life flight agency. Outside of work, she loves spending time with her son, learning about new cultures, relaxing at the beach, and exploring scenic views throughout the island. Jenelle also has two pets, and plans to finish attending college for a degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography.
